Funny story; My father's dearest friend, and my landlord as a child, Wolfgang, who know resides in Pa., used to like to challenge himself. It wasn't so much about getting the trophy, it was more about how good you are with a gun. Accuracy was his goal. I can't remember the name of the gun he would use, but it was a single shot, ball and powder, and I think the range was only good at like fifty yards, and you only get one shot, and pray your that good, would go bear and mtn cat hunting with it, and sure enough would come home with a prize, almost everytime, with tall stories to go with it. If your out there Johnnie, I am sure PA. hasn't been the same, since you arrived, hope all is well.

I don't hunt with handguns but my buddy in PA uses a 480 Ruger with a red dot sight on it for bear hunting. I shot it a couple of times and no thank you. My 45's are plenty for the kind of hunting they are used for:whistling:

Now I am so happy this room was started.

This is my hunting partner this season, since I can not bowhunt this year. A S&W 629 .44 Magnum

When I hunt with a rifle, I always carry my .40 cal S&W Sigma Pistol
My Rifle isn't always loaded, my pistol is.

used my old mans 44 Ruger super redhawk but realized my .270 was lighter & shorter J/K was heavy though
I do carry my Ruger LCP .380 just in case

Whats the kick like on the S&W ? With such a short barrel, it's like my 45 PS 90, I ended up selling it, and got the 9mm ladies S&W. Just love it.

I don't think it kicks bad at all, If you have a S&W .9mm the kick from that is close to how mine kicks.

Where you live can you actually hunt using a 9mm or .40 cal handgun?
